What’s in my Fridge!

I get asked a lot about what I eat on a daily basis, particularly when I post one meal on Instagram Stories or Snapchat, I’m asked about my diet. I have lots of tips, recipes, substitutes, kitchen essentials and even some food diaries in my health corner section of my site. But I thought I’d post what staples are in my fridge and in my cupboard which makes up most of my meals on any given week!

I’ve split them into categories below for easy reading, and I do my main weekly shop via Tesco online, it’s very handy! I also stock up at times with Kerrigans Foods, or take a trip to Aldi or Lidl if I’m nearby.

Fresh Food

My fresh food choices listed below are mainly made up of vegetables which I use for pretty much every dish, you can lash almost anything into a stir fry or have in my Shepards Pie dish. Courgettes are handy to have as an alternative for pasta in the form of courgetti, and then garlic, herbs and chillies I use with almost every dish. I do love a bit of spice so I tend to have Jalapenos on hand to add in too. The fruits are mainly ingredients for my green smoothie – and I sometimes just buy the fruits frozen. I tend to keep a mini garden of fresh herbs outside so they are always on hand. And then there’s eggs. Poached or Boiled of a weekend (dippy egg and soldiers) and the odd omelette when I want something quick and easy during the week, and it’s a fab ingredient on a homemade pizza! Then the avocado isn’t in the list for notions, I only buy them sometimes and mostly for my homemade egg ‘mayonnaise’ (which has no mayo) but you will have seen it on my Instastories!

  • Mushrooms
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Tenderstem Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Ramiro Peppers
  • Parsnips
  • Red / White Onions
  • Garlic
  • Chillies
  • Jalapenos
  • Courgettes
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Celery
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Pineapple
  • Bananas
  • Lemon & Limes
  • Avocado
  • Free Range Eggs
  • Fresh Herbs – Basil, Parsley, Rosemary, Coriander, Thyme, Chives


Meat wise I tend to have mostly Turkey. So burgers for something quick paired with veg, mince for my Shepards Pie or a Bolognese dish, and then sausages at the weekend as a treat! Chicken is always a handy ingredient to have in the fridge, and himself cooks the most amazing roast chicken (I can’t). Steak I love, and the meats platter is for my homemade pizzas!

  • Chicken – Whole or Fillets
  • Steak
  • Turkey Burgers
  • Mince – Turkey or Beef
  • Turkey Sausages
  • Prosciutto & Salami platter


As always with cupboard bits, they aren’t a weekly purchase, but these are always in stock! Spices are essential when you’re keeping on the clean eating track, and cause, flavour! I use Tamari Sauce instead of Soy for stir fries, along with Tahini to make it creamy! Passata is a no brainer for pasta based dishes and for my homemade pizzas, and then oil wise I cook in either rapeseed or coconut. The Oats, Almond Butter and Chia seeds are the main ingredients for my Overnight Oats so these are always in my cupboard. Nespresso capsules are a necessity, and then flavdrops in loads of different flavours as a sweetener.

  • Tamari Sauce
  • Tahini
  • Passata
  • Tinned Chopped Tomatoes
  • Gym Chef seasonings – Smoke & Spice / Tandoori / Cajun
  • Nespresso Capsules
  • Oil – Rapeseed / Coconut
  • Agave / Honey
  • Almond Butter
  • Chia Seeds
  • Cacao Powder
  • Oats
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Flavdrops – White Chocolate / Peanut Butter / Strawberry / Maple
  • Himalayan Pink Salt
  • Dried Herbs / Spices – anything and everything!

Bakery & Dairy / Alternatives

I don’t eat a huge amount of bread, but when I do it’s McCambridge at the weekends with poached eggs. I use the wraps for my homemade pizzas which I have at least once a week, they’re so delish! Dairy wise I drink alot of coffee so I opt for Almond Milk to save on the calories, and then I sometimes add greek yogurt to my overnight oats, and then the cheese is for my weekly pizzas.

  • Wholemeal Wraps
  • McCambridge Wholewheat Bread
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Grated cheese
  • Greek Yogurt

Drinks & Frozen Foods

I tend not to have any fizzy drinks in my fridge and just keep plenty of litres of sparkling water. I do always have MiWadi with no added sugar, it’s like a handful of calories and really keeps the sugar cravings at bay – with plenty of ice! Treats wise again I don’t keep anything other than the dark chocolate referenced above, and then some Alpro plant based icecream. They taste so good – the hazelnut chocolate and almond salted caramel are my favs!

  • Sparkling Water
  • MiWadi No Added Sugar
  • Ice
  • Alpro plant based Icecream

So there you have it, some whopping content in the form of all things food. But it helps give an idea as to what I eat on a weekly basis without me having to go into detail each meal. I keep my weekdays fairly clean, so that I have room to indulge a bit more on the weekends, but it all balances out over the week, and I avoid a lot of temptation by just not having it around!
